The Moontrane Conductors Emptysea
- Words: Tyra Bangs
- Label: King Fizz
There's something about this CD that really reminds me of early '90s chill-out rooms. Perhaps it's the dub influences on "Element" and "Killadub," recalling The Orb's outer space tripster swirl. Or maybe it's the moody cinematic trip-hop of numbers like "Axis" and "In For the Night," whose languid atmospheres and drummy backdrops will please fans of early Ninja Tune. At times this debut is a bit too "progressive," as on the wanky synth scrawls of "Radio Bastard" or the horn-laden vocal cut "On My Own." Mostly, though, Emptysea contains good quality evolved trip-hop for beanbag dwellers and early morning comedowns.
